Daisy will perform each service the client has requested. During each visit, she will always provide fresh water, food, clean the yard with a scooper (if requested), litter box and cages as directed, administer medications as requested, companionship, exercise & belly rubs. Daisy is happy to accommodate most special requests as she wants your pets to be as happy and comfortable as possible while you are away.
